Breakthrough: Stir the Pot: 2 Kings 4:38-44

About This Message


1. I Am Starving…Jesus is my bread

When Elisha returned to Gilgal, there was a famine in the land. The sons of the prophets were sitting before him. He said to his attendant, “Put on the large pot and make stew for the sons of the prophets.”
2 Kings 4:38 (CSB)

Look, the days are coming—this is the declaration of the Lord God—when I will send a famine through the land:
not a famine of bread or a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.
Amos 8:11 (CSB)

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Matthew 5:6 (CSB)

2. I Am Sick…Jesus is my healer

One went out to the field to gather herbs and found a wild vine from which he gathered as many wild gourds as his garment would hold. Then he came back and cut them up into the pot of stew, but they were unaware of what they were. 40 They served some for the men to eat, but when they ate the stew they cried out, “There’s death in the pot, man of God!” And they were unable to eat it.
2 Kings 4:39-40 (CSB)

Now when he heard this, he said, “It is not those who are well who need adoctor, but those who are sick. 13 Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy and not sacrifice. For I didn’t come to call the righteous, but sinners.” 
Matthew 9:12-13 (CSB)

3. I Am Saved…Jesus is my Savior

Then Elisha said, “Get some flour.” He threw it into the pot and said, “Serve it for the people to eat.” And there was nothing bad in the pot.
2 Kings 4:41 (CSB)

But Elisha’s attendant asked, “What? Am I to set this before a hundred men?” “Give it to the people to eat,” Elisha said, “for this is what the Lord says: ‘They will eat, and they will have some left over.’” 44 So he set it before them, and as the Lord had promised, they ate and had some left over.
2 Kings 4:43-44 (CSB)

I am the bread of life,” Jesus told them. “No one who comes to me will ever be hungry, and no one who believes in me will ever be thirsty again.
John 6:35 (CSB)
